The only area where it is legal to use Safe and Sane Fireworks in Nevada County is in the Nevada City Nevada City limits, and even there there are some restrictions according to Nevada City Fire Chief Sam Goodspeed.
Goodspeed suggests people use the fireworks on a paved surface with a bucket of water close by. Lately most people have been gathering in the parking lot at Searls Avenue and Argall for a joint party to set off fireworks.

Even though Safe and Sane Fireworks are legal to use in Nevada City there is no where to buy they in Nevada City, and that means people would have to transport them from out of the area. That is actually against the law in the County according to Nevada County Deputy Fire Marshall Terry McMahan.
A special task force is being set up again this year among fire officials, police and sheriff’s to patrol for the use of illegal fireworks.

McMahan suggests people enjoy the fireworks on the 4th of July by going to the public show at the Nevada county Fairgrounds, and there are also fireworks displays in Lake Wildwood and Lake of the Pines that are permitted.
